Wind in corn country


Recommended Posts

Riding in corn county. Encountered heavy gusting winds out in the flat knee high corn fields. NW 20-35+ mph while I was riding north. Blew the wheel onto the shoulder twice at just under 20mph. Had to ride at 15-16 anticipating another gust.

Hey Barryjo,

Most of my learning to ride my Kingsong 16s was around Mayo, Florida. It is pretty flat with stands of trees intermittent with very large pastures. The wind  would be especially strong when emerging from the protection of the trees. I had read in one of the threads that crossing your arms(fist to elbows) in front of your chest helps. I tried this technique and it worked for me.
